Date

20th - 22nd May 2016

Base

Llangorse Multi Activity Centre, The Gilfach, Llangorse, BRECON LD3 7UH Tel: 01874 658272

The Centre

The centre caters for Climbing, Horse riding, off road Cycling and provides accommodation for several other outdoor activities. Please look at the website, particularly accommodation. www.activityuk.com It is a very attractive site, lots of interest, and nice buildings.

Accommodation

There are two bunkhouses: Small, 4x6person rooms, total 24, and Large, 1x8,+ 1x6 + 3x4 person rooms, total 26.

NB. The small bunkhouse has been booked for us, but we may be able to alter this to the larger BH, to provide greater flexibility, at a later stage. Both have ample self cater kitchens and shower rooms, but breakfast is also provided in the café, currently £6.50.

There is also a very good B&B close by www.penybryn@activityuk.com; on site camping; and a big campsite on Llangorse lake (1.5 miles) www.llangorselake.co.uk

Proposal

We will adopt our usual pattern of arriving on Friday afternoon, with evening meal at the centre. Cycle day trips on Saturday and Sunday both on and off road. Saturday meal likely to be at a pub in Llangorse, 1 mile away.

The bunkhouse is booked on Sunday 22nd by another group, but we have permission to leave cars on site and use the Climbing centre showers post rides. Return Devon late pm. Allow 3 hrs travel.

NB. There is scope to extend your weekend either side of the suggested dates; It is a very attractive area for cycling, walking and sailing/canoeing on the lake. Superb views of the Beacons from the centre.
